Allstate confirms acquisition of SquareTrade for approximately $1.4B

The Allstate Corporation has agreed to acquire SquareTrade, a rapidly growing consumer protection plan provider that distributes through many of America's major retailers. The privately held company will be purchased for approximately $1.4B from a group of shareholders, including Bain Capital Private Equity and Bain Capital Ventures, in a transaction expected to close in January 2017. Allstate will acquire SquareTrade utilizing corporate cash and debt issuance, subject to market conditions, with no impact on Allstate's existing share repurchase program. The transaction is expected to be dilutive to Allstate's earnings per share for three years, including the amortization of intangible assets, and is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.

Progressive downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst James Naklicki downgraded Progressive (PGR) to Sell saying consensus margin and earnings expectations are too optimistic. The company's margins should "deteriorate materially" as it books new business at a combined ratio of around 129%. The analyst cut his 2016 earnings per share estimate to $1.65, which he notes is well below consensus, and dropped his price target for the shares to $31 from $36. Naklicki recommends a pair trade of long Allstate (ALL), short Progressive.
